Members of the Youth Group at St Mary’s Parish, Grantham decided to raise the £100 to buy a cow through CAFOD World Gifts by selling cakes to their very generous fellow parishioners.
A cow is four gifts in one for a struggling family in the developing world. Its manure can help grow crops, its milk can supplement the family’s diet, plus any extra milk can be sold at market. What’s more, any calves can be passed on to help another family.
The £100 pays for a locally-sourced cow and necessary jabs plus training for the family so that they know how to look after the cow correctly.
Thank you to all those who made, sold and bought cakes!
